The B.C. SPCA is hosting one-day camps this summer at the Beban Park Recreation Centre.

The camps help children develop skills through a range of educational and fun activities, including animal-themed games, skits, crafts, guest speakers and more.

“The highlight for many of the kids is the time they spend every day interacting with and learning about animals such as cats, dogs, rats and other small furry creatures,” said Paula Neuman, B.C. SPCA humane education manager.

The Nanaimo camps, July 18, Aug. 16, and Aug. 23, are from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. They’re open to children ages seven to 12. Participants can be dropped off at 9 a.m., and picked up at 4 p.m. Cost is $25 per camp.

Registration is online at www.spca.bc.ca/camp or by calling 1-604-599-7209.
